Everyone On Your Team Needs Cyber Security Training. Including You!

Every good business leader knows that training is essential for a highly productive team.

But have you ever considered giving your staff cyber security training? You really should.

What is it?

It’s about increasing their awareness of the ways that criminals try to break into your IT system, and the devastating consequences if they do.

So, they’d learn:
• How to spot the different types of fake emails and messages, and what to do with them
• The risk of social engineering by email, phone, or text message
• Why we use basic security tools such as password managers and multi factor authentication (where you generate a code on another device)

By holding regular cyber security training sessions, you can keep everyone up to date. And develop a great culture of security awareness. It’s another layer of protection to help ensure that your business doesn’t become part of a scary statistic (one small business is hacked every 19 seconds).

As the company owner, it’s critical you do the training, too.

You’ll be one of the most targeted people in the business, as you probably have access to all the systems, including the bank account.

If you don’t already have cyber security training in place, we’d love to help. Give us a call at (734) 457-5000, or an email to info@mytechexperts.com.

Not many owners and managers realize this… but the biggest data security risk to your business is actually your team.

We’re not talking malicious damage. But rather, them being caught out by cyber criminals.

It only takes one click on one bad website, and your business can be compromised. It really can be that simple.

Hackers target staff to try to install malware on your devices. Then they can try to extort money, corrupt files, or steal your sensitive business data.

In some cases, this can cause such extreme damage to your business that it makes genuine recovery very hard. Trust us when we say you want to avoid it at all costs.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to help protect your business from this kind of attack. And you’re probably already doing some of them. [Read more…]
